Round Trip    One Way

ALCOHOL should be banned on flights according to the majority of passengers.

That’s the stunning finding of a survey about budget airline Jet2.

Three months ago the carrier moved to ban the sale of alcohol on its flights before 8am.

These new results revealed 73 per cent of people agreed with the decision.

The survey has just been released by World Travel Market, which is running in London from Monday to Wednesday this week.

Jet2’s decision to ban alcohol on morning flights came after a series of incidents involving drunk passengers.

Joshua Strickland, 21, was banned from Jet2.com for life in after boozing on a flight to Cyprus in July. Strickland “illicitly” drank alcohol he had taken on to the aircraft and then threatened a family on a flight from Leeds-Bradford airport to Larnaca and had to be restrained.

The aircraft had to be diverted to Manchester.

Strickland, from Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, was sentenced to six months in prison after pleading guilty to being drunk on an aircraft.
